Under the hood is the Helio G96 chipset by MediaTek, a mid-range processor under a 12nm process. The chip is then paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The phone runs on Android 12-based XOS 10.6 on the software side and is capable of an additional 5GB virtual RAM support.

For cameras, the Note 12 VIP uses a triple-camera setup that consists of a 108MP primary, 13MP ultra-wide, and 2MP depth sensors.

Keeping the lights on is a 4,500mAh battery alongside a whopping 120W HyperCharge technology. Infinix claims that the phone can charge from a flat zero to a hundred percent in just 17 minutes.

The Infinix Note 12 VIP comes in an 8GB + 128GB memory configuration and is priced at US$ 300 (~roughly PHP 15.7K).

Note 12 VIP aside, here comes the G96 variant. As the name suggests, it retains the Helio G96 chipset seen on the VIP model. It also retains the same 6.7-inch AMOLED display in Full HD+ resolution with the exclusion of the 120Hz refresh rate and 10-bit support.

The Infinix Note 12 G96 sells out for US$ 200 (~roughly PHP 10.4K).
